    I am looking to buy a few emu or rhea hatching eggs. If you have some I would love to try to hatch some. Is it breeding season for emu and rhea?

    If you have some just let me know how much you want for them...


    Thanks.

    I'm looking for some hatching eggs. I've never hatched them before so I don't know how well my hatch will be...

    News:
    Dad is getting out of the Emu/pheasant Farm biz in Northern California.
    He has various age and sexes to get rid of, I do not know anything about his prices, or if they are to be given away....and I do believe they only lay in the spring, so no eggs right now.
    Anyone interested please PM me, Dad has no internet, and he is in NorCal. Not here in Washington..Thanks~

    Quote:Ebay has one up for bid? I wanted to know if you or anyone else would purchase an egg on ebay? It is up to $17.00 with shipping and handling $15.00? No returns? You can eat the egg or hatch it? What do you think or anyone else, please? Chris

    I'd wait for a BYC member to sell some personally...... have better chances of a good result.
